View Full Version : Any good mild recipes
06-14-2005, 11:53 AM
Lately I have been having a hard time staying raw because I have not liked many of the recipes I have tried. Some of these recipes I have tried include the mock salmon pate, the broccoli soup and the falafels. I believe it might be the spices in these such as cumin that give me a horrible stomach ache. After only a few bites I have had to lay down from such a bad stomach ache. Maybe since I do not usually include spices in any of my meals that is why they are making my stomach uneasy. Also I have found that if I make a desert with a large amount of nuts I get a horrible stomach ache as well. The only things I like are smoothies, salads with seriously mild gauc (avo,little tomato, barely any onion, salt and lime) instead of dressing, the nori rolls and the stir-fry (cauliflower with nama shoyu marinated veggies over it). does anyone have any suggestions for some mild, delicious recipes i would be so ever grateful! :)

First of all, recipes are only a guideline based on what the author likes. You can change them as you wish and add or remove spices that do or don't agree with you. Some of my clients cannot tolerate cilantro so I use parsely instead. Maybe dill would agree with you more than cumin or coriander.
As far as not feeling well after eating nuts, simple solution ~ don't eat nut-based deserts (guess you've already got that one down though, don't you?) :)
Here's a nice list of recipes you might try ~
Personally, I usually eat what you have listed. I rarely make much in the way of "gourmet" type foods anymore for myself.
Have you gotten Alissa's dvd's and book? There are LOTS of recipes to choose from there. Another I tend to like is Storm and Jinjee's eBook. They rarely dehydrate so their recipes are quite simple and easy to make. The do make a lot that is tahini based though, if that's not to your liking, you can always substitute cashew or almond butter.

I love soups and find them to be easily digestible. Like Revvell said, you can leave out spices if they bother you. I add alot of spices to mine. Tomato soup, zucchini soup, squash soup and gazpacho are staples for me. I want to try a carrot ginger soup next. Ginger is a good digestive aid, so a small amount might be beneficial to you.

yes , you might have to play around a little bit , like texcal said ginger is great! Also fresh basil ,lemongrass and other herbs are better than the dry stuff!
Hmmm, flax crackers (mild of course) sound helpful ,and also you might try banana ice creams, they can be a great dessert (or meal :p)! How about trying to eat more whole fruits and veggies ,no spices in there ;)

I love spices and lots of them, but that is me, well actually my entire family, my 1/2 sister won a jalepeno eating contest, I believe it was 150 or so.
Anyway, I think your idea of just not adding the spice to the dish, then trying it, or adding a little at a time, might be a good one for you.
I would think that the amount of fats in the nuts would be more stomache disturbing than the spices.
Cayenne actually kills bacteria in the stomache that causes ulcers, so that is a good thing, and if you want a healthy digestive system, eating galic, onions, hot peppers will help.
I know this is why the hot climates started using these foods
1. they preserved the food
2. they killed the parasites
3. they disguised rotten food taste
4. they kept your gut healthy
This is why hotter climates use so many spices in their foods.
